I was born in Michigan, but have been living in southeast Florida for over 20 years. I played with Marx Brand Toys, Ohio Art and G.I. Joe, as a child. I was particularly found of Farm Sets, and received my first Marx Platform Farm Set in 1968. From that day forward, I wanted to be a farmer when I became an adult. My mother, and my whole family, were against my occupational choice. My mother was born on a farm in Croswell, Michigan, (near Port Huron) and she always told all of us that farm works was very difficult and it was" hard to make ends meet!" So, despite my love of plants and animals, I was practically forced to attend a non-agricultural university. Anyway, I guess I am a frustrated farmer-type. At tlromeo vintage toys, we concentrate on the sale of Playsets and individual items created primarily by Marx and Britian's Ltd. and produced from the 50's, 60's and 70's! We have everything you could possibly need or desire in the area of farm toys, western toys and army sets!
